does anyone want to share their experience in building waterproof multicopters? I'm looking into building a hexa that would allow me to fly in light rain or snowfall. I'm currently using a 3DR Hexa with 880 motors and was thinking about putting the motors upside down to protect them from water. It would proably require a different frame and even different motors though. Any ideas and thoughts welcome!- BradSee More
"from the APM 2.5 schematics it seems they are just breaking SDA when using an external magneto. DRDY stays connected to PC6 (A14 Atmega). The 3DR magneto doesn't have a DRDY pin broken out. I'm wondering what relevance it has then. Maybe…"
"I hear you regaring v2.5, thanks Jeff. Option #2 migth actually work for me. Looking at the PCB I think I have identified SDA & SCL. According to the schematics they are using DRDY (Data Ready) as well. I don't find DRDY on the external I2C…"
"I'd like to put an external magnetometer on a board HMC5883L at least 6" above the battery and power distribution with an APM 2 similar to what NAZA looks like. I already got the the uBlox Lea6 working with onbaord GPS disabled. I'm…"

same problem here. Has anyone a good solution for this? I can't just use a file since it would very likely be off center. Using a…"
for engineering fun. Was interested in Mikrokopter but was turned off by closed source. Now running APM2 on a 3DR Hexa with 880 motors, u-blox lea 6 GPS, sonar, opto flow, 3DR Radio, video transmitter and 4S/8000mA lipos. GoPro Hero2 on stabilzed gimbal.
